Tour

Student-guided tour of the University of Maryland Wind Tunnel and the Terps Racing workshop. Come see where the magic happens and how the students fabricate, assemble, and test their Formula and Baja vehicles that were on display at the 46th Annual Car Show on July 14th. Here's what you'll see on the tour:

  • Design studio featuring team history
  • Machine shop with cars, spare parts, and machining equipment
  • Wind tunnel testing facility and machine shop

Parking & Walking

We will be parking in the Regents Drive parking garage near the center of campus, at the corner of Stadium Drive and Regents Drive, as shown on this campus parking map. Parking is free and unrestricted on weekends in sections B and RR of the garage.

So we stay together and no one ends up parking in the wrong area and getting a ticket on campus, we can meet at Ikea (at 495/95 and Rt. 1) at 9:30, consolidate into fewer vehicles, and proceed to campus. A detailed map will be e-mailed to those who RSVP.

Terps Racing team members will meet us at the garage at 10:00 to take us to their workshop in J.M. Patterson (Building 83 on the map). Do note that there will be at least a block walk from the garage to the Terps Racing workshop and about a two block walk (slightly downhill) from the workshop to the Wind Tunnel. Then the return trip to the garage.

Lunch

After returning to Ikea, we have several options nearby for lunch which include Hard Times Cafe, Mamma Lucia, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chipotle, Potbelly, New York Deli, etc. We can decide the day of where we'd like to go for lunch.
